My well pump tank has been gone for a while. Electric bill went up $100 per month! I will replace it tomorrow. I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you.

usually it is the diaphragm that has dried up. These guys can test and recommend a repair. they are family business and don't try to oversell, just recommend what you need.

We used Sky Country.
Fair, efficient, trustworthy.
We recommend them highly.

Anybody have a recent experience with Geowater Services out of Evergreen ?

Our well pump is out and we are in need of a good supplier.
Thanks.

No experience with Geowater, but Sky Country treated me well when they replaced my well pump a couple years ago...

we used Geowater once and promptly fired them.
We have acidic water. They sent a kid out that did not know how to use their test kits as my husband had to show him. THEN they tried to sell us a water softener system WITH annual maintenance. THAT WAS NOT OUR PROBLEM!
We bought a neutralizer tank and installed it ourselves to raise the ph. I would NEVER use them. They showed dishonestly and trying to sell you expensive crap you don't need.
I used Sky when I was doing a house rehab to sell. We had lots of problems with the well pump,etc. It had to be replaced according to inspector. They were amazing, on time and priced well. Dad was still coming out then, but I think he has since retired and the sons and nephew are running it. Honest folks.

I would skip Geo Water also - not great experiences with them.

If it's the pump located in the well itself, I like Aspen Drilling, though haven't used them for a few years.

If it's something within your mechanical room, try The Water Guy, Todd Hart, ‭(303) 753-1737‬. If he can't do it, he will recommend someone trustworthy who can.

I stopped using Geowater several years ago because they are too expensive. They were going to charge me $100 to walk through the door, before they even looked at my well system..
